Tom Cruise’s developing outer space film has found its director in Doug Liman, the man behind hit films such as ‘Mr. & Mrs Smith’.
Deadline reports that both Cruise and Liman’s conversation about the making of the film is complete as the latter has already penned the first draft of the screenplay and is producing alongside Cruise as well. With much details about the film under wraps, the little detail revealed indicates the film will have Elon Musk’s Space X Falcom 9 rocket from Florida on board.
Before pre-productions even takes off, Cruise is currently committed to complete his ‘Mission: Impossible 7’ shoot, which came to a halt due to the COVID-19 pandemic shutting down Hollywood. Liman on the other hand, has post-production duties to finish on Lionsgate/BRON film ‘Chaos Walking’, which stars Oscar nominee Cynthia Erivo.
Per reports coming from Hollywood, the outer space film remains an independent production with no major studio attached to its making or financing in the meantime.
The actor and director are both repped by CAA.
